Whose kind of town?

It was interesting reading about my home town of Chicago from Jan Morris's point of view. I would suggest that next time she visits she strays from the posh North Shore and regal Michigan Avenue and visits those "pompous multi-denominational churches that surround the inner city" to see the "little black boys . . . in hilariously virile games" in their natural habitat . . . from the vantage point of a stretch limo with blackened windows and bullet-proof exterior, of course.
